Our Team

  • MIKO McGINTYPrincipal

    Miko McGinty began designing art books in 1993. Her first book, Isamu Noguchi: Essays and Conversations, established her deep commitment to working with artists, curators, scholars, and museums. Trained in typography and letterpress as a Yale undergraduate and in book design at art publisher Harry N. Abrams, McGinty returned to Yale School of Art for her MFA in graphic design. Upon graduation, she launched her own firm with the book YES Yoko Ono. Her studio of four designers has created books for numerous artists and more than forty museums worldwide.

  • RITA JULESSenior Designer

    With over fifteen years of experience in the McGinty office, Rita Jules draws on her love of typography, respect for scholarship, and enjoyment of the craft of bookmaking to design publications that appeal to both the eye and the mind. She has designed and produced books of all kinds—exhibition catalogues, artist's books, monographs, museum guides, and cookbooks—and designed logos, all manner of printed media, exhibition graphics and wayfinding signage along the way. Interested in material culture studies, she wrote her M.A. thesis for Bard Graduate Center on the handful of late eighteenth-century English aesthetes who jump-started a revival of sans serif letters.

  • REBECCA SYLVERSDesigner

    Rebecca Sylvers comes to the world of art books with a background spanning print design, branding, and cultural studies. A Yale graduate, she’s as interested in the visual world around us as she is in making the very real things that exist within it. Her favorite projects allow her to innovate within and push the bounds of a book, melding her sense of curiosity with a well-honed sensitivity to content, context, and audience. All the while asking the question: what makes someone pick something up, and what makes them come back to it again and again?

  • JULIA MADesigner

    The newest addition to the McGinty team, Julia Ma brings a fresh typographic perspective to the printed material, exhibition graphics, and logos she designs. Her love of letterforms stems from her time managing a letterpress printing and bookbinding studio and creating custom and original fonts at Frere-Jones Type. She enjoys exploring a variety of typefaces ranging from those inspired by historic lead type to ones that were only just created this year.
